Drill lots of holes of various sizes into the log, using a selection of drill bits and auger bits. Work along the full length, on all sides.
Push the fat and seed mix into all the drill holes. Then find a suitable site for the feeder where visiting birds won't be disturbed.
Dig a hole, deep enough for support your log. Stand the log upright in the hole, then backfill with soil, firming it down with your foot.
